General information on data processing
Data protection on our website
Please see the information below on the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected and used on our website. In terms of content, we are guided by the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), given that the data protection provisions of the German Telemedia Act ceased to apply on 25 May 2018.

You have the right to lodge a complaint with the data protection supervisory authority in relation to data protection issues. Please see the legal notice for further details.

Scope of processing of personal data
Knopf und Knopf International GmbH + Co.KG does not collect or use any personal data of the users of, or visitors to, our website.
Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 (a) of the EU Data Protection Ordinance (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data. For the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para 1 (b) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 (c) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis. In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 (d) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis. If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 (f) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.
